Not-guilty pleas entered on child rape, animal cruelty charges

PORT ANGELES — A 41-year-old Port Angeles woman has pleaded not guilty to child rape and animal cruelty charges.

Deanna Marie Wilson entered her plea during an arraignment in Clallam County Superior Court on Friday.

She is charged with third-degree child rape, four counts of first-degree animal cruelty, possession of and dealing in depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct and furnishing liquor to minors.

Port Angeles police said Wilson raped a 15-year-old boy after providing alcohol to a group of minors Oct. 6 and had sexual contact with a dog May 4 and Oct. 1.

Police said Wilson took photographs of the alleged crimes with her cellphone.

Clallam County Superior Court Judge Brian Coughenour scheduled a one-week trial for Dec. 12. A status hearing is set for Nov. 18.

Wilson is being held in the Clallam County jail on $100,000 bail.

Should she post bail, Wilson would be required to have no contact with minors or animals and wear a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor unit.

Coughenour signed post-arraignment sexual assault protection orders preventing Wilson from having contact with the alleged victim or the other children who were at her residence when the alleged rape occurred.

Wilson is being represented by Port Angeles attorney John Black.
